Claiming Trump is a cult leader is the latest newsroom fad

Certain members of the media need to get out more often. They are doing that thing again where they are all saying the exact same thing.

The latest fad promoted by members of the commentariat involves alleging that Republicans and Trump supporters are members of a “cult.”

Edgy stuff — almost as edgy as it was in 2016.

“Increasingly, President Trump’s support seems cultish,” disgraced newsman Dan Rather said on Nov. 17 during an appearance on CNN’s ironically named Reliable Sources. “These cults, cults generally don’t end well. People will say it’s too much to say it’s a cult. I don’t think so.”

Later, on Nov. 24, Reliable Sources hosted so-called mind control expert Steven Hassan to lend credibility to Rather’s “cult” characterization.

I have zero problems with the MSM duplicating HilLIARy's Basket of Deplorables self-revelatory foot-in-mouth moment, many times over. :yowsa:

Modern journalism is all about deciding which facts the public shouldn't know because they might reflect badly on Democrats. - Jim Treacher

Some Trump fans are embracing it. T-shirts now available.
The current culture deviated radically from previous human experience, ruthlessly reducing each woman and man to mere political units to be manipulated, balkanizing them into communities according to their likes and dislikes, so everything from cars to candy bars could be more effectively marketed, robbing them of their privacy, denying them both a real community of diverse views and the possibility of personal evolution by censoring the world they saw through the Internet to make it conform to the preferred beliefs of their self-appointed betters. - Dean Koontz

I love the juxtaposition of the usage of a brand targeted to african americans and co-opted for use as a slogan for Trump!
